Image Curve is one of the best online short story publishers, taking a modern approach to sharing fiction over the internet.

We love reading well-written, unfiltered, contemporary fiction by creative people of all backgrounds. We love the classics and pay them a visit often, but we want to be on the cutting edge of current fiction. We want to observe, empathize and contemplate how our collective global society digests the world and then spits it out. Most importantly, without the filtering machine of agencies and publishers that only select marketable works.

We believe free thought is on the brink of extinction. It is up to us to save our creativity from rigidly structured rules – from pay-per-word arrangements that kill original ideas. We are centered around something else: people, stories, ideas, sentences, phrases, words, letters and sounds. We cherish their random flow through lives of families, friends, and utter strangers. We bind them into tales and share them with all of humanity.

We are an outlet for all. We believe ordinary people need fiction as much as water. Save literature. Save it from capitalism, communism, alcoholism and all the -isms that try to shape the written word into their own design. Free thought is not quite free in out mercantile times. Let us use this space to introduce freedom, to let literature flow freely, everywhere, to everyone. We strive to be the place where all varieties of writers can mingle – wearing a mask if they choose to. We are a blank sheet for all to express their ideas, without middlemen.
